This course number (and possibly title) is changing
starting for the Fall 2007 semester.
Z543: Computer-Mediated Communication is the replacement for this course.
Computer-mediated communication (CMC) is human-to-human interaction via computer networks such as the Internet. This course examines potentials and constraints of several types of CMC, and considers how content and dynamics are influenced by the systems' technical properties and the cultures that have grown up around their use.
